Tasting Notes

The 2016 Old Vine Chardonnay is made from premium, single vineyard grapes grown in the cool climate of Eden Valley.

It has gentle aromas of pineapple and Meyer lemons on the bouquet.

The palate is delicious and creamy, yet having lovely, crisp balancing acidity, giving you a superb, satisfying mouthfeel. The plentiful peach flavours linger on the tight, fresh finish.

Wine Making

Hand harvested, gently pressed then controlled temperature fermented, with a component matured in French oak barrels on lees for 12 months, so as to add complexity, creaminess and richness to the wine.

Cellaring

Whilst this wine is excellent right now, if properly cellared, it will round out beautifully over the next 2-3 years as it matures, to become a classically, elegant, cool climate Chardonnay.

Food Suggestion

At present, this wine is an ideal accompaniment for lighter-medium style food dishes. However as it ages, it will become a fabulous wine to be enjoyed on its own.
